Verse of the Day: James 4:2
You do not have because you do not ask God.
God already knows your needs before you ask (Matthew 6:8) but He still wants to hear your request and see you exercise your faith. If God did everything for you automatically you would soon take it for granted. Coming to God in prayer for your needs show your dependence on Him. If there is something you need, go directly to the source. Take it to God in prayer, be bold and confident with your personal requests and always pray with the right motives.
Verse of the Day: Lamentations 2:19
Arise, cry out in the night, as the watches of the night begin; pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord.
God wants you to come to Him with the good and the bad. It’s easy to bring to the good through praise and thankfulness but we also need to bring our troubles to Him. He already knows what you’re going through but He wants you to bring it all to Him. It doesn’t matter if it’s anger, frustration, confusion, pain, suffering, lay it all at His feet. Don’t hold back, pour your heart out to God and He will give you peace.
Verse of the Day: Matthew 7:11
So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him. (NLT)
Doesn’t it make you feel wonderful to know you have given your children what they’ve asked for on their Christmas list? Now, think about how much more your heavenly Father also wants to give you good gifts. God loves you and it makes Him happy to bless you with the desires of your heart. God already knows what you need before you ask, if you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.
